Event description

Description

In this regional round table for senior leaders in Higher Education, we explore the technology challenges currently faced by universities in delivering richer student experiences.

Bringing together cross-institutional insight and real-world experiences, we examine common roadblocks and challenge misconceptions about technology’s strategic role in creating a digital student experience that’s fit for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Together we explore new concepts focused on helping shape the organisation’s strategy in attracting students and delivering greater wellbeing.

Themes for this round table will include:

  • Re-examining the role of student information systems. The explosion in CRM tools and growth of ‘shadow IT’ has left most institutes with a plethora of disparate systems. We explore ways forward that will unify data in readiness for the impending boom in usable artificial intelligence tools.

  • Fighting the friction. As technology becomes ubiquitous, simpler to use, and more affordable, we increasingly find that it’s people across the organisation that make change an up-hill battle. We discuss real-world strategies for inspiring and energising stakeholders.

  • The end of the IT department or a new dawn? As IT teams struggle with the burden of managing legacy IT, is their role now a case of ‘managed decline’ while nimbler faculties buy their own cloud-based applications to meet changing needs? Or rather, is IT’s governing role more important than ever? We examine the technologies that are empowering IT teams to respond faster to organisational demands. We look at how a mixture of technology, people and processes can facilitate the need for continual organisational improvement.

Following round table discussions there will be the opportunity to network over lunch. The Birmingham round table event will be held as part of the day-long Crimson Innovation Conference that you are welcome to participate in before and after the workshop.

The event is sponsored by Crimson, a Microsoft Gold certified specialist in rapidly delivering student attraction and retention platforms for UK universities.
